Shahbaz Ahmed is set to don Sunrisers Hyderabad colours, having been traded from Royal Challengers Bangalore in exchange for Mayank Dagar. This trade deal was finalised on the penultimate day before the closing of the trade window, gearing up for IPL 2024.
While SRH secured Dagar for INR 1.8 crore in the previous season, RCB invested INR 2.4 crore in Shahbaz during the 2022 auction.
With both Shahbaz and Dagar specialising in slow left-arm bowling, this trade is a like-for-like move. However, Shahbaz brings an extra dimension with his batting potential, adding significant value.
